Taking the first step to initiate therapy can be hard as facing our problems may feel scary and challenging. Therefore, I try to create a safe space for clients and make this process as smooth as possible. My approach to therapy is to help individuals build insight and self-understanding into their difficulties and patterns, and help them move from feeling “stuck or lost” to feeling encouraged and empowered to make the changes they want and need to have a fulfilling and satisfying life. In sessions with me, you will find warmth, support, empathy, genuineness and honesty, a splash of humor, as well as some challenging conversations.
I believe every individual is unique in who they are, where they come from, and what their needs are, and the reality is that the same “remedy” will not work for everyone. For this reason, I engage in a collaborative multicultural approach to therapy where the client and therapist create a treatment plan that is better suited for the client’s needs.
One of the most important factors in therapy is the therapeutic alliance; in other words, the relationship between the client and therapist matters. Finding a therapist who aligns well with your personal tastes and needs can be a complex process. For this reason, I offer a free 20-minute consultation to collaboratively determine if we are a good match.
Dar el primer paso para iniciar terapia puede ser difícil, ya que enfrentar nuestros problemas puede resultar abrumador y complicado. Por lo tanto mi enfoque en la terapia es ayudar a las personas a desarrollar comprensión y entendimiento sobre sus dificultades y patrones, y ayudarlos a pasar de sentirse "estancados o perdidos" a sentirse con la confianza para hacer cambios que quieren y necesitan para tener una vida plena y satisfactoria. En sesión conmigo encontrarás calidez, apoyo, empatía, autenticidad y honestidad, un toque de humor, así como algunas conversaciones difíciles.
Creo que cada individuo es único en cuanto a quién es, de dónde viene y que necesita, y la realidad es que el mismo “remedio” no funcionará para todos. Por esta razón, participo en un enfoque multicultural colaborativo de terapia en el que el cliente y el terapeuta crean un plan de tratamiento que se adapte mejor a las necesidades del cliente.
Uno de los factores más importantes en terapia es la alianza terapéutica; en otras palabras, la relación entre el cliente y el terapeuta importa. Encontrar un terapeuta que se alinee bien con sus gustos y necesidades puede ser un proceso complejo. Por esta razón, ofrezco una consulta gratuita de 20 minutos para determinar en colaboración si encajamos bien.
